Urban Agriculture, Montreal Style! Hybrid Research Hub Supports Urban Resiliency
Join Eric Duchemin, Co-Founder and Scientific Director, Laboratory on Urban Agriculture/Laboratoire sur l’agriculture urbaine (AU / LAB) (au-lab.ca), as he provides an overview of AU / LAB's activities – including an experimental rooftop farm, eco-grazing, rooftop vineyards, and the Urban Agriculture Montreal Hub. Eric will also present the preliminary results of a three-year research project that evaluates how urban agriculture, and particularly household gardens, act as green infrastructure for individual and collective resilience in an era of climate change.

It is a nonprofit organization that is associated with the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), and works with municipalities, real estate developers, building managers, farming social groups, and other UA stakeholders to help in UA planning and development.
